[edit] Storyline

  • SPOILER ALERT

[edit] In the Beginning

After trying to capture a criminal in an embassy, by illegally entering the country, 007's boss 'M' (Judi Dench) is displeased with his efforts and is unsure if he is the right man for the job. As he continues to follow the trail, the trail leads Bond to the Bahmas to corrupt banker Le Chiffre (Mads Mikkelsen) who is funding international terrorists. He then follows his leads and avoids the destruction of the greatest airplane in the world in Miami plotted by the evil banker Le Chiffre to crash the stock market and break the air flight company into bankruptcy. The banker loses the funds of international terrorist organizations and attends a poker game in Casino Royale, Montenegro, to raise the money of the investors.

[edit] The Poker Game

At Casino Royale, Bond is funded by the Bank of England and replaces one of the participating terrorist organizations on the table. If Le Chiffre loses the game in Casino Royale, he loses all his business. The game accumulates into threats, desperation and attempted murder. Eventually, it boils down to a game between Le Chiffre and Bond, which he wins.

[edit] Differences from the Novel

There are many differences from this movie to the original novel by Ian Fleming.

Notably, the card game played is different. In the book, the game is Baccarat. In the movie, No Limit Texas Hold'em is played. The difference is most probably due to the popularity of the latter at the time of the film's release.
